Pat Buchanan Calls For ‘Massive Disobedience’ to Fight ‘Anti-Christian Discrimination’
Pat Buchanan is none too pleased the Supreme Court didn’t strike down gay marriage rulings in multiple states this week and has penned a column comparing “anti-Christian discrimination” to racial segregation.
“Today rogue judges and justices, appointed for life, answerable to no one, instruct a once-democratic republic on what laws we may and may not enact,” Buchanan writes, even though that’s basically exactly what the Court’s job is. “Last week, the Supreme Court refused to stop federal judges from overturning laws banning same-sex marriage. We are now told to expect the Supreme Court itself to discover in the Constitution a right of men to marry men and of women to marry women.”
Discussing the “de-Christianization” of public schools by the Supreme Court, Buchanan goes on to ask, “Why was there not massive civil disobedience against this anti-Christian discrimination, as there was against segregation?”
Well, Pat, because the Constitution calls for a separation of church and state, not the separation of black and white. So, maybe start there.
“Why did Congress, which has the power to abolish every federal district and appellate court and to restrict the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, not act?” Buchanan wonders.
“In 1954, the Supreme Court ordered the desegregation of all public schools,” Buchanan writes. “But when the court began to dictate the racial balance of public schools, and order the forced busing of children based on race across cities and county lines to bring it about, a rebellion arose. Only when resistance became national and a violent reaction began did our black-robed radicals back down.”
And to think, at one point, this man could have been our president.
